  • Classical and folk art, along with history, are intertwined within delicate and elaborate patterns of lace in the “Handmade Lace: From Fine Art to Folk Art” exhibit at Mesa Public Library.

  • You watched the match, right? Clicked the TV on at 7 a.m. Sunday morning, without even lifting your head? Eventually rubbed your eyes, rolled your pillow in half so you could lean back on it and see the screen, and realized you forgot to take your contacts out the night before?

    You watched what many people are saying was the best tennis match ever.

  • Wondering what is the sweetest class that the Pajarito Environmental Education Center will be offering this summer? Without a doubt, it is the classes on beekeeping with local honey man Scott Mills of Mariposa Apiaries in Los Alamos.

    The first of the two classes is offered for those who are interested in learning more about honeybees and beekeeping in general. Topics in this two-hour introductory course will include life inside the beehive, the honeybee life cycle, the importance of honeybees, and protective clothing and basic equipment needed for getting started.

  • Everyone’s career has some type of significance; whether it is a trash collector who ensures neighborhoods and city streets remain sanitary and clean or a police officer who maintains everyone’s safety.

  • Going through cancer treatment changes how a person looks and feels. This, in turn, can modify ones’ actions, relationships and life. If you are going through cancer treatment and want to be more comfortable in society again, realize you are not alone.

  • To anyone who thinks a library is just books, its time to look between the shelves because the Los Alamos County Library System is about to prove just how cool it really is. The rock ’n’ roll band, The High Strung is coming to perform, along with the local band, The Small Town Lab Rats.

  • “The Marriage of Figaro” has been one of the world’s most popular operas almost since its first production in Vienna 222 years ago. Through Mozart’s immortal music, never more sublimely simple, and the revolutionary, politically-incorrect play of Beaumarchais, the complex depths of the human heart are plumbed under the deceptively pleasing guise of romantic farce. Nobody dies, true love triumphs and everyone is paired off appropriately.

  • Possessing intellect is not the only vital component to being successful in science; having fun is also essential.

  • What would you do? You’re a middle-aged woman living in a big, suburban home. You and your husband have four daughters, one in high school, one in college and two in-between.

    In Mike Binder’s “The Upside of Anger,” this is Terry Wolfmeyer’s (Joan Allen) situation. She decides to get mad.

    And she finds a few things  to keep her furious.
